The Ton

Australian Muscle Car - - Contents -

This magazine is set to hit the ton! As we head to­wards our land­mark 100th is­sue, to be pub­lished in Fe­bru­ary 2018, we’re dig­ging out some key ‘Ko­dak’ mo­ments from the archives of the mag’s early days. This time we go all the way back to is­sue #2 and that is­sue’s cover story shoot.

With our land­mark 100th is­sue just two is­sues away, we are get­ting all nos­tal­gic here at AMC HQ and dig­ging up be­hind-the-scenes pics from our ear­li­est days. Here’s is­sue #2’s GT-HO Phase III cover im­age ‘un­plugged’ from its early 2002 pho­to­shoot at Oran Park Race­way. Oddly, only two colour im­ages of this stun­ner from Hel­mut Mueller’s shoot made the cut and ap­peared in the magazine. The drop­sheet cre­ated a clear line of def­i­ni­tion be­tween the spoiler and the ground, as­sist­ing graphic de­signer Mat Clancy with his dig­i­tal wiz­ardry in deep-etch­ing the car from its back­ground.
